Institut Guttmann, as a private foundation, is accountable to the Protectorate of Foundations, a body that protects, controls and supervises the Department de Justícia de la Generalitat de Catalunya, as well as the Department de Salut and the Ministerio de Sanidad of the Spanish Government. The foundation maintains in all its activities, and promotes legal, honourable, ethical and responsible behaviour among the relationships that establishes.

The foundation has made ethical commitments in each of its areas of activity by the Code of Ethics and the Social Statutes of the Foundation, which establish the rules of good governance to be followed by all members of the Board of Trustees and the Managing Director, who is responsible for its management.

The institutional policy of Corporate Social Responsibility establishes, in a transversal way throughout all the organization, crosscutting integration, satisfaction, participation and commitment of all stakeholders in the care of people, the environment, good governance and transparency.  This is the document, which in line with the Foundation’s objective, expresses the will, objectives, orientations, strategies and continuous action of the Corporate Social Responsibility and Compliance management system of the Fundació Institut Guttmann.

The organisation submits every year  an Audit of Accounts in order to guarantee proper management of its assets, as well as to national and international accreditation bodies that certify the safety and quality of its care and scientific and teaching activities, and the proper protection of the environment. Fundació Institut Guttmann is also a member of the Code of the Catalan Union of Hospitals and periodically submits itself to the corresponding audits in order to guarantee the confidentiality of all its actions by complying with the data protection law.


Institut Guttmann, faithful to its policy of transparency, in addition to this annual publication of the Corporate Social Responsibility Report, has permanently updated a section on its website “Code of Ethics, Transparency and Good Governance” in which all documents relating to the results of the activity and the withdrawal of accounts are published and available, among others, and it complements the provision of the Department de Justícia of 12 September 2018 in reference to the Law 21/2014 of 29 December and in compliance the transparency obligations to which foundations and associations declared of public utility are subject.

Furthermore, it regularly reports all its actions to the Social and Participation Council, in which are represented the main associations of people with disabilities to which the Foundation dedicates its services, experts from civil society and key government administrations involved in this area.

The Board of Trustees of the foundation is responsible for formulating the annual accounts in such a way that expresses the faithful image of the assets, the financial situation and the economic results of the financial year, in accordance to regulatory framework applicable in Spain.

The Economic Monitoring Committee of the Fundació Institut Guttmann, made up of members of the Board of Trustees, the management team and independent people from civil society, periodically supervises the foundation’s financial accounts and ensures the correct preparation of the annual accounts, budgets of the year, as well as any other financial advice or analysis commissioned by the Foundation’s Board of Trustees.

Most of the Foundation’s income comes from its care activities as a high-specialised hospital, and especially from the service contract it has signed with CatSalut.

The Institut Guttmann income from providing care services is 25.3 million euros, of which 17.3 million (69%) correspond to the contract signed with CatSalut, and 7.9 million (31%) to other funding sources (transit insurance companies, mutual companies, national and international private patients and others); and 3.5 million of accessory income to ensure the viability of the foundation and enable it to fulfil its funding goals. The income from scientific activity corresponds mostly to competitive research projects and to the registration fees for university teaching programs. The income from social activities corresponds mainly to the residential services of the Guttmann Barcelona Life apartments for 173,000 euros, and to the subsidies for carrying out social activities, the most significant of which is the road safety campaign carried out jointly with the Servei Català de Trànsit.  The “Friends of the Institut Guttmann” fundraising campaign collects donations from organizations, companies and individuals that supports the foundation’s initiatives, which in this year’s edition include 300,000 euros from a private collection.

Finally, within the economic and other activities, it is worth to emphasize the transfer as a result of capital subsidies by 484,000 euros, financial and interest income for 359,000 euros and leases of space in Badalona hospital and the areas adjacent to the lands of Barcelona for  114,000 euros.

The economic sustainability of the Institut Guttmann, with the quantity and quality of the specialised clinical services it offers, requires a private activity, in addition to the public one, approximately equivalent to a quarter its total care capacity.


The percentage represented by the subsidies over the total income of the Foundation in 2019 was 0.7%, for an amount of 169.000 euros derived from competitive research projects, 60.000 euros were allocated to the accident prevention programme of the Servei Català de Trànsit of the Departament d’Interior of the Generalitat de Catalunya and 4.000 correspond to a subsidy from the Departament de Treball, Afers Socials i Família for the computer classroom and pre-work initiation.
